This Cruise was booked so we could tick one off our Bucket List the "Melbourne Cup Carnival". What better way to travel in style to the Cup than by a Beautiful Big Luxurious Ship. My husband generally drives to our holiday ... Read more

Embarkation was fine, nothing impressive, but I never felt like I was bored waiting, maybe I was just too excited at the time? Disembarkation was a bit more painful, we chose the last slot to disembark, but I think the machine broke ... Read more
